Newsletter (Summer 2018)

The Society's Summer 2018 Newsletter (NL186) has been issued for a few weeks now so that plenty of notice is given to members of the forthcoming Annual General Meeting, to be held at Hill Farm, Gestingthorpe on Saturday 9 June 2018.  Gestingthorpe has its association with the Oates family, and Captain Oates on Scott's ill-fated polar expedition of 1912. On The Antique Roadshow last evening (BBC 1 3.6.18) someone brought along buttons, an ice-pick and compass purported to have been owned by Oates.  A digression.

In this edition is focus on the movement of the brass to Thomas Satpel, a London B style brass, from the redundant church at Sutton to Rochford. A celebration will be held at St Andrew's Church, Rochford, on Saturday 14 July 2.00-4.00pm to which all are invited.
